ERCOT Market Summit - Presented by Infocast

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

Understand the Impacts of the Enormous ERCOT Market Design Changes Happening Now!

Phase 2 of the ERCOT market redesign is shifting into high gear. The largest and most far-reaching market and rule reforms in the history of ERCOT are poised to be enacted, with the potential to bring enormous changes to how providing power is rewarded, what new products and services are needed to increase reliability, and how large flexible loads and BTM energy resources can actively participate in the market.

At the same time, massive additions to load, more extreme weather, and growing price volatility are both increasing risks and opening new opportunities for power asset owners, developers, QSEs and investors. How will these changes impact market participants, and how are they planning to handle the emerging policy and market challenges?

Infocast’s ERCOT Market Summit will provide maximum insight into the directions these impending changes will drive the market, bringing policymakers together with utility, solar, wind, IPP, finance, and trading executives to explore the future of this massive power market. This group of leading players and decision-makers will examine the impacts on resource adequacy, power prices, project siting and bankability, and how to best meet the shifting needs of commercial, industrial and retail customers.

An unparalleled group of experts and insiders will:

  • Assess how massive regulatory and market rule changes will impact ERCOT in 2023 and beyond
  • Evaluate how the potential solutions to increase capacity and improve reliability could affect energy costs and asset profitability
  • Explore how supply chain difficulties and fuel cost increases are affecting opportunities to deploy solar, wind and storage in ERCOT
  • Examine how the energy strategies of sophisticated new customers are driving contracting strategies and opportunities for innovative joint ventures
  • Provide insight on what will be needed to assure the bankability of projects in ERCOT

Last year Infocast’s ERCOT Market Summit reached new heights in terms of attendance and audience satisfaction. Attend the ERCOT Market Summit along with 450 of your peers and take advantage of your best opportunity to connect with key players, hear their plans for the upcoming year, and discuss opportunities in today’s business environment that will lead to successful deal.

We provide independent, objective coverage and analysis of the wholesale electric industry’s markets and policymaking, saving you time and ensuring you don’t miss the issues most important to your interests.

Features include:

  • Coverage of key RTO/ISO committee, subcommittee and task force meetings. We’ll be there when you can’t.
  • Coverage of news events impacting the industry throughout the 35 states managed by the RTOs/ISOs.
  • Coverage of state and federal regulatory (FERC, EPA) & legislative news affecting RTO/ISO stakeholders.
  • Issue Briefs: Concise summaries of major issues (e.g., Order 1000, EPA’s 111(d) rule).

What RTO Insider is: A source for both the big picture (e.g. analyses of major FERC rulings and RTO stakeholder developments) and the details (why is Manual 28 being changed and what does that mean to me?)
